Down and out in Paris, London and Chicago

lyrics

Fifty euros for that train
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine
I've got my lady on the brain
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine

It's up and down these corridors and in and out of sleep
When you're looking for a good time but it isn't coming cheap
Unless you kiss some arse and pledge allegiance to the queen
I'd rather drown my sorrows by the Seine

You piss you're money down the drain
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine
No polis-man can feel my pain
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine

It's just a fly-in visit then you're off to London boy
We'll see you in a couple of months in Chicago, Illinois
You can nurse that little comedown on a fifteen hour plane
I'd rather drown my sorrows by the Seine

Fifty euros for that train
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine
No politicians feel my pain
I think I'll drown my sorrows by the Seine
